Dr. Harry 1. Johnson, jr. (M.D. '53) 

Johnson Leads 
Alumni Association 

by Paul Woody 

When Dr. Harry I. Johnson, Jr., 
was growing up, it was quite excit- 
ing to catch the street car from his 
home in Salem, Virginia, and ride 
it several miles into Roanoke. 

"That was a major excursion," 
he said with a laugh. 

Over the years, Johnson has 
gone on many much larger excur- 
sions. As an officer in the United 
States Navy Reserve, he has trav- 
eled throughout the world. He has 
seen all of Europe, lived in a fish- 
ing village on an island off the 
coast of Sardinia, and visited 
China. He even owns a condomin- 
ium in Columbia. 

But no matter where he has 

gone, there have been two con- 
stants in his life — his private prac- 
tice of internal medicine in Roa- 
noke and his love for MCV. 

Johnson graduated from the 
School of Medicine in 1953 and 
entered private practice in Roa- 
noke in 1957. 

And now in 1987, he will serve 
as the president of the MCV 
Alumni Association of VCU. 

Throughout his travels, Johnson 
has learned one thing. The trip 
home is much more pleasant if you 
have a nice place to return to. 

That's one of the major issues 
he plans to address during his 
tenure as alumni association 

"A major priority, if not the 

major priority is the future of an 
alumni house, be it this one or 
whatever other house we have," 
Johnson said from the living room 
of the current alumni house, the 
Maupin-Maury House on the 
MCV Campus. 

Plans initially called for the 
Maupin-Maury House to be trans- 
ported across Clay Street to prop- 
erty the university had exchanged 
with the Alumni Association. That 
sounds relatively straightforward 
and simple. 

But these are modern times, and 
in modern times, people labor for 
years in search of the simplest 
solution, only to discover that the 
simple often gives way to the 


It should come as no surprise to 
anyone in the medical profession 
that insurance is the problem. The 
insurance costs involved in moving 
the entire building have become 

"Now, it seems more reasonable 
to move the facade and save the 
significant interior pieces, such as 
the marble mantlepieces, and build 
an entire new buidling," Johnson 
said. "The Alumni Association 
needs a new home. Since the deci- 
sion was made to move, no main- 
tenance has been done on this 
building. It could be condemned 
around us unless we get out 

"And, a new home would enable 
the Alumni Association to better 
serve the MCV Campus." 

What Johnson forsees is not just 
an administrative location for the 
association offices. He foresees a 
building that would house a faculty 
club, as well as suites for visiting 
professors and distinguished vis- 
itors to the campus. 

"I hope we can get things going 
within the next year," Johnson 
said. "But we have no estimate of 
completion, no bids have been 
taken. But since the Alumni Asso- 
ciation is 98 years old, it would be 
nice to have a new facility for its 
100th year." 

Johnson also hopes to help the 
Alumni Association in another 
area. One way alumni can express 
their support of the university is 
through monetary contributions. 
Johnson has issued a challenge to 
the 99 other members of the medi- 
cine class of '53. 

Johnson has set a goal of 100 
percent participation in annual giv- 
ing from the class of '53 and a goal 
of $100,000 in contributions. 

"It's a challenge to our class, but 
we had a pretty tightly knit group 
when I was here," Johnson said. 
"We've kept up with each other 
over the years." 

Johnson has not been an easy 
person to keep up with. He always 
has enjoyed traveling, and the 
navy afforded him an opportunity 
to do just that. He realized that 
even when he joined at the age of 
17 during World War II. 

"When I put the white hat on 

for Uncle Sam it was a join the 
navy and see the world type of 
thing," Johnson said. "I enjoyed it." 

Johnson was a career navy man 
who retired from the service with 
the rank of captain last spring 
when he reached the age of 60. 

"The navy says you retire when 
you reach my age." Johnson said. 

But before he retired, he enjoyed 
a few of the fringe benefits the 
navy has to offer. 

For instance, he met his wife 
while on a summer tour of duty in 
Key West where she was a nurse 
in a navy hospital. And in their 19 
years of marriage, summer tours 
of duty for the navy took them to, 
among other places, Spain, Italy, 
an island off the coast of Sardinia, 
and the Philippines. 

But he hasn't relied entirely on 
the navy to take him to exotic 

Because his wife is a devotee' of 
National Geographic, the Johnson 
family (his wife Jolene and sons 
Harry III, who is 18, and Scott, 
who is 13) own a home in Santa 
Marta, Columbia. 

"It's the oldest western-settled 
town in the New World. It dates 
back to 1425," Johnson said. 

Spending time in Columbia isn't 
something most would consider 
commonplace. But Johnson doesn't 
think of it as being all that exotic. 
There was a perfectly logical rea- 
son for going there in the first 

"And we used to go to Key West 
in February," Johnson said, "but it 
kind of got overrun with tourists. 

"(One winter) My oldest son had 
been sick with pneumonia, and we 
were looking for a place in the sun. 
We couldn't get into the hotel we 
wanted in Puerto Rico, but my 
wife had just read National Geograph- 
ic about the emerald coast of 
Columbia and how marvelous it 

"Now, that's not everyone's cup 
of tea, but until drugs became 
popular as a recreational vehicle, it 
was a different sort of time. But 
where we are is fine, no problems. 
And the weather is always fine. It's 
85, plus or minus five degrees, 
year 'round. We're on the south 
rim of the Carribbean, and I guess 

you would say it's something like 
Columbia's Myrtle Beach. But you 
have to stretch your imagination 
to say that," Johnson added with a 

The Johnsons bought a condo- 
minium there in 1971. 

Now, Johnson would like to 
make visits to the MCV Campus 
as attractive for alumni as vaca- 
tioning in Columbia has been for 
his family. He knows he can't 
make it 85 degrees, plus or minus 
five, year 'round. But he has seen 
the progress downtown Richmond 
has made, and he thinks the same 
can be done to the MCV Campus. 
"It's hard for an urban university 
to attract alumni back to its ivy- 
covered halls, when those halls 
might be next to the parking lot of 
a fast-food restaurant," he said. 
"We want to make the entire MCV 
area a more attractive place to 
visit, and we think a new alumni 
house could play a major role in 

"We're going to try to get the 
alumni house situation going. The 
Alumni Association has been strug- 
gling, living in a makeshift envi- 
ronment ever since the decision 
was made to move instead of ren- 
ovate. Everybody gets nervous 
about moving. But I think we've 
got to move." 

Johnson has been a mover in the 
Alumni Association for quite some 
time. He was chairman of the 
association's Medical Division 
three years ago and has served on 
the Board of Trustees "off and on 
for the last 15 years." 

His appointment as president 
lasts for one year, and he is well 
aware that one year is enough, if 
you do it right. 

"The growing pains that came 
with integrating the downtown 
campus with the uptown campus 
have not been the easiest to over- 
come." Johnson said. "But we need 
to realize that everyone's goal is 
the same. The only reason alumni 
associations exist is to benefit the 
university and to make the univer- 
sity stronger."

The Charles P. Cardwell, Jr., 

Charles P. Cardwell, Jr. 

Dr. James S. Todd, this year's 
Charles P. Cardwell, Jr., lecturer, 
is the first physician invited to 
deliver the Cardwell Lecture. He 
is senior deputy executive vice- 
president of the American Medical 
Association. The accompanying 
article is based on his speech pre- 
sented at the national meeting of 
health administration alumni held 
in conjuction with the annual 
congress of the American College 
of Healthcare Executives in Chi- 
cago earlier this year. 

The Charles P. Cardwell, Jr., 
Lecture was established in 1973 
by the Alumni Association in 
memory of Mr. Cardwell. Charles 
P. Cardwell, Jr., joined the MCV 
staff in 1940 and in 1947 was 
appointed director of MCV Hospi- 
tals. In recognition of the need for 
formal education in hospital 
administration, he and Dr. William 
T. Sanger, president of MCV, 
were instrumental in establishing 
the School of Hospital Adminis- 
tration, now the Department of 
Health Administration in the 
School of Allied Health Profes- 
sions, in 1949. — Dr. Thomas C. 
Barker, Dean, School of Allied 
Health Professions. 

It is a sign of the times that I am 
with you today. When the Card- 
well Lecture was established 15 
years ago, health care executives 
and physicians were swimming in 
the waters of tradition and had lit- 
tle need to reason together. 

Your first lecturer, Ray E. 
Brown, was executive vice- 
president of Northwestern's 
McGaw Medical Center and was 
indeed a distinguished executive. 
Subsequently other distinguished 
speakers included the president of 
the American Hospital Association, 
the president of Blue Cross, 
members of the legal community, 
and respected administrators of 
various health care facilities as well 
as several in publishing. 

Charles Cardwell's vision was 
correct: health care administration 
was too important to be left to 
chance. The establishment of 
excellence in that field was a goal 
to be desired. The correctness of 
that vision is demonstrated amply 
by this gathering this evening. 

I don't have to tell you how very 
different things are in 1987. Our 
worlds impact upon each other, 
and greater forces buffet both of 
us. Roles are changing, and I think 
we are feeling our way together. 
Physicians and administrators are 
beginning to have a running dia- 
logue for only collectively, we 
realize, can we insure the con- 
tinued excellence in health care for 
Americans that has become the 
envy of the rest of the world. 

I have been asked to talk about 
the broad issues facing the medical 
profession and what roles physi- 

"Charles Cardwell's 
vision was correct: 
health care administra- 
tion was too important 
to be left to chance." 

cians are to play in shaping that 

The first part of my assignment 
is easy. It should come as no sur- 
prise that the issues causing us 
concern as physicians are the same 
ones that are giving health care 
executives fits. 

The second part of my assign- 
ment, looking into a crystal ball 
and predicting how physcians will 
shape the future, is a bit more 

"Physicians and adminis- 
trators are beginning to 
have a running dialogue 
for only collectively, we 
realize, can we insure 
the continued excellence 
in health care for Ameri- 
cans that has become the 
envy of the rest of the 

The key really lies in how physi- 
cians will shape the issues of today, 
for it is those perceptions and 
actions that will pave our way to 
the future brick by brick. But I 
don't belive we can understand the 
present, much less gaze into the 
future, without a cold, objective 
look at the past. We must 
remember the hard-won lessons of 
this decade, or the new path we 
are forging will be nothing more 
than a circle. 

We are paying for a ride Amer- 
ica took on a gravy train; it was a 
joy ride that lasted for more than 
25 years. In an effort to attract the 
best employees, companies dangled 
an irresistible carrot; and every 
year benefits got bigger and better. 
The most attractive benefit was 
unlimited medical coverage, unlim- 
ited visits to physicians, unlimited 

coverage of tests and other proce- 
dures, unlimited hospitalization, 
and just about unlimited every- 
thing else. Physicians got a little 
spoiled, so did hospital 

Then things began to change. 
Our economy began to crumble. 
Suddenly foreign business was 
booming while U.S. interests 
began to decline. Our rate of 
export declined, and no longer 
could American business foot the 
bill for unlimited medical expendi- 
tures and hope to stay competitive. 
Premiums became too high for 
insurance, and the result was scal- 
ing back medical benefits. 

Now it is common for employees 
to pay a deductible on hospitaliza- 
tion, hospital visits, and even some 
procedures. An unfortunate result 
is that preliminary studies indicate 
that patients, under these circum- 
stances, are much less likely to 
seek medical care even when they 
need it. Even more tragic are the 
33 million uninsured people who 
simply cannot afford the premiums 
but are not poor enough to qualify 
for Medicaid. On top of that, add 
15 million Americans who have 
hopelessly inadequate coverage. 

About the same time that busi- 
ness discovered it had goofed, the 
federal government discovered it 
had an economic mess on its 
hands. It took this nation more 
than 200 years to reach a national 
debt that totaled $1 trillion dollars. 
It took only five years to top the 
second trillion. Now nearly one- 
half of every personal tax dollar 
goes just to service the national 
debt. Like anyone else who has 
overdrawn a checking account, 
Uncle Sam has been forced to jug- 
gle the budget, hoping in vain to 
make ends meet. In a frantic 
search for dollars, all government- 
subsidized health care programs 
have been hacked to ribbons. 

The saddest fact is that when 
one talks about health care, a 
bottom-line mentality is counter- 
productive and calculated to pro- 
duce only more damage. Unfortu- 
nately economics and the public 
and private sectors are only two 
pieces of the complicated puzzle 
that medicine has become in the 

1980s. Perhaps more insidious is 
the philosophical attitude that says 
the health care profession needs to 
be controlled, not to make it better 
but to make it more uniform and 
predictable. This has become emi- 
nently clear with DRGs, prospec- 
tive pricing reimbursement for 
hospitals, and now the uncons- 
cionable attempt to place radiolo- 
gists, pathologists, and anesthesi- 
ologists in hospitals under DRG 
reimbursements as well. Anyone 
who has looked at history realizes 
quickly that if any physicians go 
under DRG reimbursement, in 
only a short time all physicians will 

James 5. Todd, M.D., senior deputy exec- 
utive vice-president, AMA. 

be under DRG reimbursements. 
That is intolerable and unaccept- 
able to the profession. 

The need to economize by using 
the forces of competition never 
will work in health care, for health 
care is not a perfect market. The 
informational inequality between 
provider and consumer can never 
be bridged; and probably most 
important, competition knows no 
altruism. The need to economize 
has caused some physicians to 
become salaried physicians and 
others to make other contractual 
arrangements when many might 

have preferred private practice. All 
of this has led to the birth and 
growth of alternative delivery sys- 
tems. The development of these 
new systems is perfectly accept- 
able; I don't see corporate entities 
as the Darth Vader of medicine. 
We simply want to make sure that 
all physicians, whether they are 
brand new or established, can 
choose freely their mode of prac- 
tice without unfair economic sup- 
port for one method over another. 

Even the good in our recent past 
has damaged us. We have a bril- 
liant tradition of scientific advan- 
ces. But as miraculous as these 
advances have become, they have 
had their own negative impact. We 
are living in a bewildering period 
of opposites. At the same time the 
system is feeling the effects of an 
increasing depletion of financial 
resources, the more developed and 
expensive our technology is 
becoming. Americans spent $450 
billion in 1986 alone on health 
care. If we think that is too much 
to spend, and nobody has yet to 
decide what is the right amount to 
spend, and that we also have 
wrung all the waste out of the sys- 
tem and are operating at maxi- 
mum efficiency, we are approach- 
ing the point rapidly where 
physicians, patients, families, ethi- 
cists, and hospital administrators 
are going to have to make some 
painful decisions. We apparently do 
not have the resources to provide 
unlimited tertiary care to every- 
one, regardless of individual cir- 
cumstances. It is a terrible dilemma 
that basically says to us to do 
things differently. 

The same can be said of the 
Reagan administration's love affair 
with the DRG system and Medi- 
care cuts. You and I know too well 
that we are caught between a rock 
and a hard place on the federal 
reimbursement schemes. But the 
real victims are the elderly. This is 
a particularly vulnerable group of 
patients who are frightened and 
confused when it comes to ques- 
tions about their health. The so- 
called reforms are downright sadis- 
tic. We recently commissioned a 
nation-wide survey and found that 
48 percent of all physicians already 


feel they have been unduly pres- 
sured to discharge Medicare 
patients prematurely, owing to the 
adoption of DRGs. The govern- 
ment has overlooked the fact that 
our health care system is not set 
up to receive those less well recov- 
ered, and we have no place to send 
these patients. The most rapidly 
growing segment of our health 
care delivery system is that of 
home health care, a very subtle but 
effective method of cost shifting 
on the part of the federal govern- 
ment. I am heartened by the rapid 
move of the health care industry 
into longer term facilities for these 
special patients, but it is an enor- 
mous change that cannot be 
accomplished overnight. 

These are strange times when 
health care providers team up with 
what traditionally were more hos- 
tile groups than friendly. We stand 
much to gain by working together 
to shape the future. We must 
work together on behalf of our 
communities; and it is vital that we 
share decisions about hospital 
expansion, new services, new con- 
struction, and new types of 

We're all in this together; turf 
battles will only deter us and 
create problems we can do with- 
out. Decisions will have to be made 
at every institution, big or small, 
about which programs to keep and 
which ones to drop. We must 
decide together which patient ser- 
vices are outstanding at a given 
hospital and drop the others that 
can be done better at another hos- 
pital. It is no longer realistic for 
one facility to do it all. While we 
must come together in thse deci- 
sions, we must delineate clearly 
our individual roles in these areas. 

For example, it is imperative that 
hospitals and other facilities do 
everything possible to guarantee 
the professional autonomy of phy- 
sicians in clinical decision making. 
The ability to decide what a patient 
requires clinically, the form of 
treatment that should be given, 
and the setting in which that care 
should be given is an important 
factor that physicians will not 
relinquish readily. I understand 
very well how difficult that can be, 

but be warned, the clinical decision 
side of medicine must be left to 
physicians as they cannot do their 
job if they are answering to any 
authority other than patients. The 
profession is more upset over this 
issue than perhaps any others; 
physicians will resist cookbook 
medicine and will fight the hardest 
to preserve professional autonomy, 
perhaps even harder than they will 
fight to preserve income. 

The time has come for physi- 
cians to bow out of the day-to-day 
operations of hospitals. While we 
may bring you patients, we lack 
the time and expertise and are in 
reality in a position of dependency 
on those of you who operate our 

"The real victims are the 
elderly. This is a particu- 
larly vulnerable group of 
patients who are fright- 
ened and confused when 
it comes to questions 
about their health . . . 
The government has 
overlooked the fact that 
our health care system is 
not set up to receive 
those less well recov- 
ered, and we have no 
place to send these 

health care delivery systems. We 
are dependent on you, for your 
hard labors in complying with the 
myriad of regulations, regulations 
that multiply, double, and triple 
from one year to the next. We rely 
on you for attracting the hundreds 
of hospital employees who do dili- 
gently share our burdens. We rely 
on you for fund raising. We rely 
on you to administer patient care 
programs, programs that are 
becoming more diverse and sophis- 
ticated every day. We rely on you 
to maintain a safe environment for 
patient care. We rely on you for 
your many public health and out- 
reach projects that tie your hospi- 
tals to the communities they serve. 

We rely on you for just about ev- 
erything. Without the hospitals 
you administer, doctors could not 
care for the patients who need us 
most. By the same token hospitals 
could not care for patients without 
physicians. It becomes the best 
definition of a joint venture I can 
think of. 

Our dependency is born also of 
this new era of profit margins, bot- 
tom lines, balance sheets, and mar- 
keting. It is an era of medicine as 
business. We as physicians find it 
difficult to think about next year's 
hospital budget and care for 
patients at the same time without 
creating a conflict. Doctors must 
confine themselves to the clinical 
side of hospital operations and 
patient care and give you guidance 
in these areas. We as physicians 
are first, foremost, and always 
patient advocates. That is a role 
that will never change, it must 
never change. That is a corner of 
the future that I can predict with 
every confidence. 

What lies ahead depends on you 
and me. It depends on how well 
and how quickly we adapt to our 
new roles. It depends upon how 
hard physicians and health care 
executives are willing to work 
together to influence the outcome 
of those issues that threaten the 
excellence and availability of medi- 
cal care in this country. 

One thing is eminently clear: the 
only standard we will know in the 
future is that of change — contin- 
ued, inevitable, accelerating 
change. Interventions will con- 
tinue, conflicts will increase, and 
those who will succeed in this pro- 
fession of ours will be more con- 
scious of the judicious use of 
resources, will harness and tolerate 
diversity, will cultivate relations 
with patients and colleagues, and 
will maintain a sense of social 
responsibility. Those who will suc- 
ceed will be accountable for quality 
and competence to those who pay 
and to those who can't. 

With confidence in the future 
through a unified purpose, it will 
take but little ingenuity for physi- 
cians and hospital administrators 
to continue translating technical 
progress into human progress. 

The David G.Williamson, Jr., 
Institute for Health Studies 

At its May meeting, the VCU 
Board of Visitors named the 
Department of Health Administra- 
tion's Institute for Health Studies 
the David G. Williamson, Jr., Insti- 
tute for Health Studies in honor of 
the late David G. Williamson, Jr., 
(M.H.A. '57). 

In 1985 Williamson accepted 
the chairmanship of a major fund- 
raising campaign to establish New 
Ventures in Health Administration 
Education for the Department of 
Health Administration. He worked 
vigorously in this campaign to 
raise $1.5 million until his death in 
November 1986. 

The purpose of this $1.5 million 
fund is to renovate a portion of the 
Sheltering Arms Hospital to pro- 
vide a permanent site for the 
Department of Health Administra- 
tion of the School of Allied Health 
Professions and to establish an 
endowment to provide corporate 
support for what is now known as 
the David G. Williamson, Jr., Insti- 
tute for Health Studies. 

The Department of Health Ad- 
ministration saw the need to estab- 
lish the institute because of a 
desire to externalize the depart- 

ment's offerings as well as to 
respond to contemporary health 
care needs of the community at 

Encompassing an executive pro- 
gram, an administrative residency 
program, and a center for research 
and health services, the Williamson 
Institute will provide a much- 
needed link between the university 
and administrative practitioners in 
the field. This will be accomplished 
through a joint venture with public 
and private health care organiza- 
tions, providing a forum for study- 
ing the often conflicting require- 
ment that health care organi- 
zations be at once innovative, effi- 
cient, and responsive to societal 
needs. Contemporary issues, such 
as patient payments, cost contain- 
ment, and the changing patterns of 
ownership in the health care deliv- 
ery system, are just a few of the 
present-day problems to be

Hospital building, an antebellum- 
style mansion built in 1857 by Wil-

Alumni Association of VCU; the 
White House of the Confederacy; 
the Valentine Museum; and the 
Leigh House. In the late 1800s the 
Grant House became the Shelter- 
ing Arms Hospital, an institution 
founded to care for needy citizens. 

According to James L. Dunn, 
director of external affairs for the 
School of Allied Health Profes- 
sions, the campaign now stands at 
$635,000. A number of sizable 
donations have been pledged from 
health care-related corporations 
and from among the Department 
of Health Administration's nearly 
800 alumni being solicited. 
Response from the department's 
faculty members has been excel- 
lent, with pledges and donations 
surpassing $25,000.

as custodian of the funds for 
investment, with interest and divi- 
dends being used to fund the Wil- 
liamson Institute. It receives all 
campaign gifts and administers the

1987 Graduates Nurture 
MCV Campus Family Trees 

By Elizabeth Acosta-Lewis 

Attending VCU's MCV Campus is 
simply following a family tradition 
for many of our students. As they 
graduated on May 16, students 
Anne Elizabeth Snowden and 
Richard M. Whittington each 
formed new branches on their 
MCV Campus family trees. 

Anne Elizabeth, "Beth," is the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ronald 
G. Snowden of Abingdon, Virgi- 
nia, both of whom are graduates of 
MCV (pharmacy '59 and medical 
technology '57, respectively). Beth 
received her degree in medicine 
and will be fulfilling her internship 
and residency in obstetrics and 
gynecology at the University of 
Mississippi at Jackson over the 
next four years. Eventually she 
would like to practice in Virginia, 
perhaps in the Abingdon area. 

Beth says her decision to enroll 
at the MCV Campus had a great 
deal to do with the fact that both 

of her parents, as well as several 
cousins, had studied here. "I had 
been to visit a few times over the 
years," she says. "I came back dur- 
ing college and after meeting with 
Dr. Hench, dean of admissions, for 
whom my mother had worked as a 
student, I decided to apply." Beth 
feels confident about her prepara- 
tion for the future with the medi- 
cal education she has received. 
"The facilities at MCV and the clin- 
ical aspect of the education can't be 
beat," she says. 

Ronald and Shirley (Counts) 
Snowden, Beth's parents, own and 
operate Snowden's Pharmacy in 
Saltville, Virginia. They met while 
they were both students at MCV. 

Richard is the son of Dr. and 
Mrs. E. Robert Whittington (den- 
tistry '66) and the husband of 
Missy Whittington. Richard plans 
to join his father's dental practice 
in Northern Virginia following 
graduation. "My dad has a good 
practice, and I want to return to 

The Snowden family, from left: Beth IM.D. 
'87), Ronald IBS. pharmacy '59), and Shirley 
(B.S. medical technology '57). 

that geographical area," says 
Richard. "It is an opportunity that I 
can't pass up." 

Richard came to the MCV Cam- 
pus "mainly because I wanted to 
attend dental school in Virginia," 
he says. "I considered MCV and 
Georgetown but am glad I chose 
MCV. I have been very happy with 
the experience here," Richard says. 

Robert Whittington, Richard's 
dad, says he is "really looking for- 
ward to having Richard come into 
the practice." In fact his office will 
soon be moving to a new building 
to accommodate the growth. 
Robert became interested in 
attending dental school after serv- 
ing in the dental corps in the air 
force. He enrolled as an under- 
graduate in the University of 
Richmond and while there decided 
to enter our School of Dentistry. "I 
don't know why Richard chose 
dentistry," says Robert. "He was a 
biology major in college and knew 
from day one that he would have 
to go to medical, dental, or gradu- 
ate school," he says. "It was 
Richard's decision alone to go into 
dentistry and to attend MCV." 
While the decisions were Richard's, 
however, Dr. Whittington was 
"surprised and very happy" with 
the choices he made. 

Elizabeth Acosta-Lewis is a doctoral stu- 
dent at the College of William and Mary. 


MCVH Receives 
Cancer Grant 

The National Cancer Institute of the 
National Institutes of Health has 
awarded a $1.2 million training grant 
to MCV Hospitals to train postdoctoral 
fellows in the area of cancer biology. 

Dr. David Goldman, chairman of the 
Division of Hematology/Oncology and 
scientific director of the Massey 
Cancer Center, is the recipient of the 
five-year grant and will serve as direc- 
tor of the training program. 

The program is a multi-disciplinary 
activity involving scientists in the 
School of Medicine and the School of 
Basic Health Sciences. It emphasizes 
basic training in the areas of cell biol- 
ogy, immunology, carcinogenisis, 
molecular biology, and molecular and 
biochemical pharmacology. 

The grant, which will support the 
training of persons who hold doctoral 
degrees or both doctoral and medical 
degrees in cancer-related specialties, 
will provide support for up to three 
years of postdoctoral training for each 
fellow. Approximately 15 to 20 post- 
doctoral fellows will participate in the 
program, many of whom will be re- 
cruited from major graduate programs 
across the nation. 

New MCV Campus 
Master Plan Update 

The Board of Visitors recently 
approved the Master Plan Update for 
the MCV Campus. Known as the 
"MCV-2000 Master Plan Update," its 
purpose is to determine space 
requirements through the year 2000 
and to consolidate related programs 
for MCV Hospitals and health 
science functions. 

The plan proposes six projects: 
ambulatory care expansion, a new 
medical sciences building, limited 
renovation of the A.D. Williams 
Clinic and West Hospital, second 
floor renovation of the Supply and 
Distribution Building, a new hospital 
support building, and new facilities 
for the Schools of Nursing and Allied 
Health Professions. Estimated total 
cost for the six projects is $85.3 mil- 
lion; approximately 50 percent of 
these funds are expected to be raised 
from private sources. 

The ambulatory care expansion 

project proposes a 90,000 square foot 
addition to existing facilities to house 
specialty and primary care services. 
The estimated cost is $11.7 million. 

The new Medical Sciences Building 
will expand teaching facilities, labora- 
tories, and faculty office space. The 
building would be constructed in two 
phases with a total of 223,000 square 
feet and at an estimated cost of $33.5 
million. Phase 1 will be located on the 
site of Dooley and East Hospitals; and 
Phase 2, an addition to Phase 1, 
would be located on the site of the 
existing Nursing Education Building. 

The limited renovation of the A.D. 
Williams Clinic and West Hospital 
will provide hospital and academic 
facilities for an interim period of 7-10 
years; the estimated cost is $8.2 

The second floor of the hospital's 
Supply and Distribution Building will 
be renovated for the permanent 
occupancy of the blood bank, respira- 
tory therapy, morgue and autopsy 
facilities, and patient transport sup-

Constructing new facilities for the 
Schools of Allied Health Professions 
and Nursing calls for major renova-

Excerpt from 
Academic Planning 
Committee Report 

(The continuing concern with the 
issue of a name change for the medi- 
cal center (Medical College of Virgin- 
ia] has again been raised by the Aca- 
demic Planning Committee of VCU. 
The Report of the Academic Planning 
Committee was submitted on February 
11, 1987, to Dr. Charles Ruch, pro- 
vost and vice-president for academic 
affairs. It should be noted that this 
committee report requires approval 
by the Academic Council and the 
University Council before going to 

the Board of Visitors. 

The Academic Planning Committee 
report was reviewed by the Academic 
Council and the University Council. 
The following statement was for- 
warded to Dr. Edmund F. Ackell, 
president of the university, by Dr. 
Ruch and Dr. Alastair M. Connell, 
vice-president for health sciences: 
"We do not agree with the committee 
recommendation that a name change 
for the medical center is a priority." 

An excerpt from the report is 
reprinted from the April 15, 1987, 
edition of VCU Today, the faculty/ 
staff newspaper of VCU, at the 
request of the Executive Committee, 
Board of Trustees, MCV Alumni 
Association of VCU. — Mrs. Frances 
W. Kay, executive editor of the 

C. Image 

The quality of VCU's student body, 
its academic programs, and its repu- 
tation and image are inextricably 
interwoven. VCU's image ultimately 
derives from the strength of its stu- 
dents and its graduates and from the 
products of its academic programs. 
On the other hand, the reputation of 
VCU is the means by which it 
recruits and retains students and 
gains support for its academic pro- 
grams. Therefore, to improve the 
quality of its student body and 
enhance its academic progams, VCU 
must present itself to its various con- 
stituencies in the most favorable light 

During recent years VCU has 
made significant progress in this 
area. Faculty have received national 
and international recognition for 
their achievements; the VCU faculty 
awards program has demonstrated 
the university's pride in its faculty; as 
a part of the Capital Fund Campaign 
the strengths of the institution have 
been widely publicized; and the phys- 
ical appearance of the grounds has 
improved markedly. 

However, our reputation has not 
kept pace with our academic accom- 
plishments, and the time has come to 
concentrate on our image — our self 
image, our image in Richmond and in 
the Commonwealth, and our image 
in the broader academic community. 

During the next biennium the uni- 
versity must (1) drastically improve 
its service functions; (2) continue to 
move toward achieving a unified aca- 
demic identity for VCU; and (3) con- 
tinue to promote activities with high 


1. Competency, Common Cour- 
tesy, and Collegiality. The Aca- 
demic Planning Committe 
recommends that a highly vis- 
ible program directed from the 
highest levels of the university 
be implemented immediately to 
ensure that all elements of the 
university provide competent 
service and reaffirm their 
common mission and mutual 
respect. VCU has well-quali- 
fied, committed individuals in 
each of its units. Building on 
this resource, the program 

(a) Ensure that the compet- 
ency level of services pro- 
vided by the university be 
drastically improved. The 
current level of services is 
not satisfactory, and 
immediate steps must be 
taken to alleviate this 
situation. In general the 
university must markedly 
improve the entire spec- 
trum of services provided 
to its students and faculty; 

(b) Ensure that respect for 
students and respect for 
faculty and staff be given 
the highest priority of 
faculty, administrators, and 
all units of the university 
including academic 
departments, collection 
agencies, student accounts, 
and financial aid. 

(c) Systematically ensure that 
all communications be 
literate, polite, and positive 
in tone. In particular, the 
program should include 
materials prepared for stu- 
dents by faculty; internal 
memos from faculty and 
academic administrators, 
announcements from 
faculty and others to the 
press and other units out- 
side of the university; 
recruiting materials sent to 
prospective undergraduate 
and graduate students; noti- 
fications from university 
parking; correspondence to 
students from enrollment 
services; and billings to 
university students, 
faculty, and staff; and 

(d) Make use of the normal 
administrative units of the 

university to ensure that 
all employees recognize the 
importance that the uni- 
versity places in common 
courtesy, in the competent 
delivery of service and in 
the development of a sense 
of pride in Virginia Com- 
monwealth University 

2. Unified Identity for VCU. The 
university must present itself 
both internally and externally 
as a single institution. As a step 
toward that end, the committee 
recommends that a name pat- 
tern be chosen which projects 
the image of a unified institu- 
tion and, at the same time, 
reflects its heritage and incor- 
porates its various and rich 

One solution is to rename all 
freestanding schools as Col- 
leges of Virginia Common- 
wealth University. For example, 
the Medical School would 
become the Medical College of 
Virginia Commonwealth Uni- 
versity; the School of Basic 
Health Sciences would become 
the College of Basic Health 
Sciences of Virginia Common- 
wealth University, the School 
of Business would become the 
College of Business of Virginia 
Commonwealth University, etc. 
At the very least, formal ref- 
erences to the East Campus 
should, without exception, link 
the name VCU with references 
to MCV. 

It is important that all elements 
of the university family includ- 
ing administration, faculty, 
students, and alumni work 
together in the most coopera- 
tive spirit possible in order for 
this institution to prosper in 
the competitive world of higher 
education. Each element will 
prosper as the whole prospers. 

3. Activities with High Visibility. 
The committee recommends 
that the university continue to 
develop those activities that 
provide high visibility for the 
institution. Included are the 
participation of the faculty in 
national and international 
activities within the disciplines, 
the provision of high-quality 
professional continuing educa- 
tion programs, the cooperation 
of the university with regional 

school systems in fostering the 
intellectual and artistic enrich- 
ment of elementary and secon- 
dary school students and 
teachers, the sponsoring of var- 
ied cultural events by the 
School of the Arts, the provi- 
sion of high quality patient care 
by the Medical College of Vir- 
ginia Hospitals, the continuing 
development of a nationally 
recognized basketball program 
and the participation of faculty 
in civic leadership roles. In 

(a) The committee stongly 
supports the initiative of 
the university through 
University Advancement in 
undertaking the marketing 

(b) The university should 
develop the capacity to 
host conferences and meet- 
ings of the highest quality. 
The committee specifically 
recommends that the uni- 
versity not attempt to build 
or purchase a conference 
center. Rather, an all- 
university conference 
coordinator should provide 
expertise, linking academic 
departments with the 
excellent newly developing 
facilities both on and off 
campus; and 

(c) The university should
